Extra Delays, And A Hospital Keep

To say that this weekend didn’t go as deliberate could be an enormous, MASSIVE understatement. In my put up on Friday, I used to be all enthusiastic about getting a lot of work carried out within the lavatory over the weekend. Properly, I didn’t get a single factor carried out.

As quickly as I revealed that weblog put up late on Friday morning, I went in to examine on Matt (he was sitting in his recliner within the sitting room), and he was complaining of horrible ache in his again. I obtained him again to mattress, and whereas his again ache subsided a bit, his total situation continued to worsen to the purpose that he misplaced all energy and couldn’t even suck water by a straw. Round 3:00pm, he requested me to name 911 and needed to go to the hospital.

So I did, and by the point I used to be capable of see him within the ER, he was nearly fully out of it. He has no reminiscence of the EMTs taking him out of the home and placing him within the ambulance, and he has little or no reminiscence of being within the ER in any respect.

They ran all types of checks, however every thing got here again damaging. No COVID, no different viruses that they may discover. They examined for urinary tract an infection, and thought that’s what it might have been, however that take a look at finally got here again damaging. All different checks and blood cultures got here again damaging, so we nonetheless do not know what brought on it. However what we do know is that three days within the hospital with broad spectrum I.V. antibiotics and saline did the trick, and he was feeling nice yesterday.

It was a loopy, scary, and exhausting weekend for me, although. I stayed with him the entire time, sleeping (or quite, tossing and turning) on essentially the most uncomfortable “mattress” conceivable for 3 nights. By the point we obtained house yesterday night, all I needed to do was crawl into mattress and sleep for 2 days straight. However I nonetheless wanted to get Cooper, who had been staying at my mother’s home, and choose up some dinner. I managed to maintain my eyes open at the least lengthy sufficient to eat dinner, however I fell asleep fairly quickly afterwards and had the deepest uninterrupted sleep that I’ve had in alongside time.

Then this morning, as quickly as I awakened, I remembered that at this time was the day that the tub and bathroom are imagined to be put in! And as of this morning, the toilet nonetheless regarded like this…

There’s nothing like coming off of an exhausting 4 days, adopted by one evening of sleep, with an, “OH MY GOSH!!! THEY’LL BE HERE ANY MINUTE NOW!!” I do know my contractor would have understood had I needed to reschedule, however with him and his guys as busy as they’re proper now, there’s no manner I needed to attempt to reschedule. I may have been two extra months earlier than he may work me into his busy schedule once more, and I didn’t wish to take that likelihood.

So I used to be up and off the bed gentle a bolt of lightening this morning in an effort to get all of this mess cleaned up earlier than they obtained right here to work. And one way or the other, I made it. I obtained all of my instruments put away, the entire mess cleaned up, and the world all clear for them to work. And I obtained it carried out with mere minutes to spare. So hopefully, if all goes in line with plan, this would be the final time you see this lavatory and this mural wall with out a bathtub.

Having that bathtub put in proper now will certainly make my bubble gentle undertaking more difficult when that medallion lastly will get right here, however I don’t even care. I’m simply so excited to get the tub put in!

So it’s been a loopy few days, and though I slept nicely final evening, I’m nonetheless so exhausted. I won’t make it by at the present time with out a nap. However Matt’s doing nice now, and that’s what’s actually essential. Issues obtained scary on Friday and Saturday. so seeing him accomplish that nicely yesterday and this morning is unquestionably value these sleepless nights and a little bit exhaustion at this time. And who is aware of? Possibly tonight, I’ll have a brand new tub I can soak in earlier than bedtime.
